There was unnecessary vulgarity that was not relevant to the storyline. There was no need for several of the explicit scenes, which narrowed the book's appeal and made it totally inappropriate for younger readers.
I enjoyed the mystery in an interesting time period and setting.
The novel follows 3 main characters: an American Naval Intelligence Officer, a British spy, and a Japanese pilot. I enjoyed the history and character development, but I did not expect it to end with the Japanese doing MORE damage to Pearl Harbor than what was actually done. Definitely leaves you on a down note.
This was my first Jeffrey Archer book, and it definitely didn't disappoint. Fascinating plot along with great narration...highly recommended!
I read the reviews and expected more from this book. The first half of the book was facinating, but the storyline spiraled into total stupidity. All that hedonism and "Thou art god, I am god" nonsense ruins the second half of the book.
I cannot believe that Christopher Paolini is only 19 yrs old. He may actually be my favorite author! I wish "Eldest" was available. What a great book!
This book really brings to life some familiar bibilical stories in a new way. If the King James Version is difficult to understand, this book simplifies the essential stories. It is an outstanding companion to God's Word!
A good story that hits home in light of recent events, BUT the author appears to be way too sympathetic to the terrorist who is killing Americans. I understand character development,but Demille paints the picture of a psychopath with an excuse for being a psychopath.
